Missing mojo

Looking for my challenge?

My crafty mojo has taken a vacation (so jealous) and left me behind. I'm not happy with any of these but I'm posting them anyway. Guess I'm a glutton for punishment.

This is for Splitcoast Stampers Clean and Simple Challenge #60 and for the Our Creative Corner 'Break out the Buttons' challenge. I have to say that I'm loving the new A Muse watermelon paper even though, as you know, I'm not a huge fan of pink.

The next one is for Sketchy Thursday #77 and for the Splitcoast Stampers Free for All #1 (Texture, rarely used colour - in my case teal, and patterned paper). I dug out this patterned paper from Making Memories - it totally works with this card even though it was a last minute addition. What you can't see is that it is glossy. Love it! This is probably the card I'm most happy with today.

The last one is for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger and for Paper Craft Planet's Sketch from April 3rd. I love red and yellow together so played up those aspects of the Trigger.

Thanks to all of the challenge ladies for their inspiration! Hope you are having a good week so far. Thanks for stopping by - Glenda
